Will these goose eggs hatch?

Our geese are laying eggs in their goose house which is well insulated but not heated.
They are still building up their clutches so they are not sitting on them yet.
We are still pretty chilly at night and the temps do get down to 20F-30F at night and not much about 40F during the day.
I've cracked a couple of eggs and they are definitely fertile.
I'm just wondering with it being so cool will these eggs be still viable when the geese finally decide to set them?
Thanks!

My experience with hatching geese - A friend had several geese so I said if you ever think of it bring me a couple of the eggs he said I just put 4 in the frig -- they had been washed for eating - I took them and got a hatch a nice pair - there isn't logic to what hatches and what doesn't ---

good luck -

Thanks for sharing your story.
I'm temped to try a few in my incubator, too.
Just have to finish incubating some chicken eggs.
